United Airlines is introducing an inspiring new menu experience created by the airline’s newest celebrity chef, internationally acclaimed Master Chef Curtis Stone. Customers flying in United Business from San Francisco International Airport to Tokyo Narita International Airport may select an available menu option featuring healthy, high-quality organic ingredients, developed specifically for United by Curtis Stone.
The menu option includes a salad and appetizer combination and entree. The meal begins with a salad combination of fresh grilled and marinated free-range chicken, sliced paper-thin and topped with a crisp slaw mixture and fresh ginger sesame vinaigrette. The entree features Niman Ranch braised beef short ribs with beef stock reduction accompanying honey-roasted heirloom carrots and celeriac puree. Niman Ranch cattle are raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and largely grass fed.
"We are delighted to partner with Master Chef Curtis Stone to provide our customers with another exceptional in-flight dining option," said Stuart Benzal, managing director, onboard global product. "Customers want great tasting, healthy food made from top quality ingredients, and Curtis’ simple yet elegant dishes will help bring our customers more of what they want."
"As a frequent traveler, I understand the importance of in-flight meals to the overall travel experience," said Curtis Stone. "These menu options reflect my desire to create meals that taste great and also leave travelers feeling refreshed and rejuvenated."
